Software testing is the process of reviewing a system or its component(s) to find if it completes the specified requirements or not. Testing is the process of executing a system in order to find any gaps, errors, or missing requirements in terms of the actual requirements.
In testing, a Test Scenario is what to be tested and a Test Case is how to be tested. In other words, a test scenario is a group of test cases.
This is used to test the end-to-end functionality of a software application and ensure the business processes and flows are functioning as per requirements. The tester thinks themselves as if end users and find real world scenarios (use-cases) that can be performed in testing. Once these test scenarios are completed, test cases can be written for every scenario. As Test scenarios are the concept of what to test.
A test case is a collection of steps to be executed by the tester team in order to validate every scenario’s. A test scenario usually has multiple test cases related with it, as test cases layout the low-level details on how to test the scenario.
Types of testing
There are different types of methods that can be used for software testing as following:
- Black box testing: In this method, it is used without having any knowledge of the internal process of the application is called black-box testing.
- Unit testing: This kind of testing is firstly performed by developers before the actual testing given to the testing team to formally execute the test cases for checking the functionality as per client’s requirements.
- Integration testing: Integration testing is defined as the combination of the tested part of application to check if they function correctly or not as before.
- Equivalence partitioning testing: In this method, set of test condition are divided into a equal partition that can be considered for example there is a range in input field like age limit, value, etc.
- Boundary value testing: This method is used between extreme ends or boundaries between partitions of the input values for example greater than or less than some value.
- Exploratory testing: As its name implies, it is about exploring, finding out about the software that what it does, what it doesn’t do, what works and what doesn’t work and decide with time.
- Usability testing: Usability testing basically the testers tests the ease with which the user interfaces can be used which is user-friendly or not.
- Design Testing: Designing testing is eye attracting & simple -through all browser & operating system(MAC,Windows & Ubuntu), with responsiveness of every page in different orientation, (add on like whatfont, page rular).
- Functionality Testing: Functionality testing is user friendly, working as per client’s requirements- for all browser, OS & orientation & responsiveness- should work same as per requirements or functions defined as before.
- Compatibility Testing: Compatibility testing is a type of software testing which is used to check the compatibility of the system/application/website built with various other objects such as other web browsers(IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari), hardware platforms, users (in case if it’s very specific type of requirement, such as a user who speaks and can read only a particular language), operating systems( Mac, Windows, Ubuntu) etc.
- Regression Testing: Regression testing is performed to verify that a fixed bug/error hasn’t affected in another functionality/application or business rule violation of the system.
Performance Testing: Performance testing is a non-functional testing method which is performed to determine the system parameters/requirements in terms of responsiveness and stability under various workload according to internet speed, loading time.
